There’s plenty of hard stuff about having kids. There’s a lot of joy, too, don’t get my wrong, but there’s a lot of inherent stress and tough stuff, too. We cope by having friends who get it, finding good babysitters, and yes, being able to laugh at the absurdity of it all.
That’s where we – and these 11 parents – come in, because they’ve got the experience, they’ve got the kids, and today, they’ve got the perspective to find the humor.
So please, sit back and enjoy.
11. Maybe traffic lights, too.
Just to be safe.
My 10 year old just told me that he is “simply a soul inhabiting a mobile meat vessel” and now I’m thinking I should start asking him to identify pictures of crosswalks.

10. None of that matters.
There is no logic when you’re three.
My 3 year old is SCREAMING because a car just like my wife's passed us on the freeway and she wants to tell her hi. Did I mention that we just dropped my wife off at work? Did I mention that we are in my wife's car?

9. They will literally ask at any time.
Because snacks are preferable to meals, obviously. I actually agree.
*Middle of dinner*
My kid: Can I have a snack?

8. They always give themselves away.
Thank goodness they’re not that smart for a good long while.
Me: has someone been playing games on my phone?
My kids: not us!

7. You have to live the way you believe you should.
Even if you’re a grown up.
My 3-year-old called his ice cream chocolate soup & now he's going to be my life coach

6. I see that she’s raising that boy right.
I just clomped down the stairs loudly because of my heels and my son said, “Oh somebody gonna be in trouble today. She’s wearing the mean shoes.”

5. She’ll just wait until you’re totally tired.
Or annoyed. Or both. They can always tell.

4. I wonder if he learned this from his dad.
Probably he was just too lazy to find a glass.
I asked my son to bring me my glass of wine. He brought me the entire bottle and it’s like, FINALLY, someone who actually listens to me.

3. Ooh also coffee.
Parents just deserve more free things in general.
I think becoming a parent should include a lifetime membership to a Wine of the Month Club.

2. Never give up on your dreams.
I’m sure plenty of parents would give this a read.
I’m sad that no one will publish my children’s book, “You Don’t Need to Use Five Fucking Towels a Day.”

1. But really, whose fault is that?
I’m guessing they’ve seen you fall…
Most kids think their Dad is a superhero.
My 2 yo screams "No Daddy! You're going to fall" every time I get on a step ladder.

This was exactly what I needed today.
